CMTL’s pavement testing services provides critical information on pavement condition, properties and performance.

Pavement testing is a vital element in road construction and maintenance projects. Testing limits potential damage to road surfaces, which if left unchecked can lead to cracks, potholes and costly repairs.

Our comprehensive pavement testing service covers coring and analysis of construction materials through to structural condition assessments and utility reinstatement.

Pavement Coring

Coring and Pavement Analysis

Pavement coring involves the extraction of road-based materials for laboratory testing and analysis.

Testing helps determine the strength of the bond between base layers and also assess the drainage characteristics of the pavement.

We provide comprehensive coring analysis both on-site and through our UKAS* and INAB accredited laboratories. It’s often conducted in conjunction with our Falling Weight Deflectometer surveys to give an accurate depiction of the pavement performance levels.
